My first Jubilee Colour Journal page


Good Morning Ladies, 

I hope that you are all well, we had an overcast day yesterday,  which is was welcomed,  the vegetable plants would welcome the damp weather, it also meant no watering necessary!   
The weather didn't dampen our Spirits though!!! We had the BEST news!!  Sophie had an Email to say that she had been Awarded a.....

❤๐ŸŽ‰Bachelor of Arts with Honours First Class๐ŸŽ‰❤

We were all on cloud nine all night,  she worked so hard bless her, she went nowhere,  didn't even see Lewis since Christmas as she goes into 'Study Mode',  she can relax now, we have her graduation to look forward to next!! 

Todays Journal page is my first 'Jubilee colour' themed project.  I used Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink, for the blending and Spray Oxide ink for background using free stencil that came with my latest Stamping Magazine, I stamped over the stencilling, with some of the free stamps in the same set, I embellished the page with some die cut and layered butterflies from my SU Butterfly Gala stamp and die sets.  The sentiments are from a Honkeydory sentiment pad, coloured with the blending brush that I used for the background,  the residual ink was just enough to add a hint of course to the stark white sentiments. A few purple pearls top and bottom to finish the page.  A very simple layout with layered stamping to remind me of the jubilee. 

I think that Soph and I will pop out for celebratory coffee this morning! 
I hope that you all have a lovely day too,

Love and hugs to all of you,
